Lightspeed Consumer Panel / Scam

1 United States

A letter from with Lightspeed Consumer Panel letterhead arrived via mail asking me to complete a survey. Enclosed was a check for $1765.59. $1470 of which was to be transferred via MoneyGram @ any Walmart location for a $75 fee. I was to keep $220.59. I deposited the check and waited 3 days for it to clear and then withdrew the $1545 and proceeded per the instructions. However, after doing so I called my bank and they informed me I was overdrawn and realized it was a scam and went back to the Walmart/MoneyGram and had my money returned. I have to check with my bank and figure out why they allowed a stop payment after the check cleared, because they were able to stop payment on the check therefore overdrawing my account.
